HipHollywood has confirmed that DMX will take on George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match in March.
Damon Feldman, the organizer of the event tells HH that the rapper is slated to enter the ring with Zimmerman and that details will come later this month. But we are told that Zimmerman is thrilled about his opponent.
“[Zimmerman] is excited,” Feldman tells us. “He always wanted to do a boxing match, this is his passion.”
Feldman added, “DMX is controversy and he’s controversy that’s what sells. DMX wants it real bad.”
As we previously reported, The Game, Michael Lohan and DMX were the top three celebrities most interested in taking on the Florida resident who was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Proceeds from the fight will go to charity.
Sound off: Is this going to be a good match?
